Stephen A blames Nagy for Trubisky, but Nagy wasn't there when they drafted Trubisky - he inherited him. Mel is correct, Nagy didn't utilize Trubisky properly, but Pace is to blame for pairing Nagy's offense with Trubisky's skill set.

Pace was there when they drafted Trubisky. Nagy was not. Nagy was in Kansas City at that time, pushing the Chiefs to draft Mahomes.

Man, I live near Chicago and I’m no Bears fan, but Nagy is a damned fine coach. There’s maybe three other guys coaching right now that could take Trubisky to the playoffs twice. And Trubisky was a PACE draft, not Nagy. Pace is the problem

The Bears are NOT a playoff caliber team. And I'm a die-hard fan since 1985. It kills me to see this charade year after year. Great defenses, good ground game, no QB. Pace has to go.

The Bears could have got Tom Brady, anyone. The Bears O-Line cancelled all that. Mitch isn't as bad a player as the talking heads, and his stats show. Again if you can't block, everything else is null and void.

He’s backwards as usual. No you haven’t been too tough on him........Nagy is a very soft HC and he does nothing. He’s the biggest problem of the bears. I love how SAS claims “nagys record is this over the last few years” that ain’t his record it’s the defense. He did almost nothing for those wins

Let's see how Nagy messes Fields up. Nagy told Mitch to stop running and Mitch listened to him. That was his only good point. Pace got a reprieve, Nagy hasn't.
Chitex03 Ditë më parë
We’ll definitely see what Nagy is about and how he helps develop Fields in the next few seasons. It’s not so much about making the playoffs this year, but seeing how your future QB develops and is he turning into a stud or a dud by next year. Nagy will still need to balance the offense and run the ball with Montgomery. I hope we can trust his play calling in a new season.

Somebody has to tell stephen A that Nagy was not the coach when Trubisky was drafted. It was John Fox. In trying to apologize to Nagy, he partially blames him for one of the biggest draft blunders in history that he had no hand in. However, as a Bears fan, i wouldve fired Nagy already for his playcalling
bg147 2 ditë më parë
What in the world? Nagy hasn't coached a game since the end of the season and Smith has done a full 180 in the interim. Why is he even talking? The Bears have 8-9 guaranteed losses this year against the best teams and on the road.

The guys was out coached left and right by other coaches. Plus, he refused to adjust his play calling to capitalize on Trubisky's strengths. As soon as the play calling went to Lazor, they improved.

A lot of top draft gurus had Mitch as the number one QB coming out that year I believe Mel Kiper had him also at number one, everyone keep saying Nagy did not use him properly you can only do so many roll outs and hook routs in a game before it get shut down. Nagy could not even open up his play book because his QB can't read a defense especially a zone defense.

No Nagy should be on the hot seat So let’s circle ⭕️ back You drafted Mitch 2.0 and added O-line, who you throwing under the bus 🚌 Nagy has been and continues to be the issues the bears have. The tape never lies, look at the lack of hustle and every play.

Nagys players fight for him. That to me is the ultimate test of a good H.C. They don't quit on him ever. Now he may need a Offensive Cordinator. He is 1 of the best in the world at screening passing game open. But the run game he does not call good at all. I'd let the current OC who avg 30ppg to end the year call the run game and Nagy call the pass game. We will see about our DC. The players really like him. I thought Jay Rodgers was the guy.
